According to Google, “the Daydream app is no longer supported by the company and may crash on devices running Android 11 and later.” This is because gadgets adapted for the platform and updated to Android 11 no longer work with it. In particular, this may affect smartphones Pixel 2 and Pixel 3. The Pixel 4 device, which was released in 2019, did not support the application, from which it could be concluded that development will be stopped soon.

The company also said that most of Daydream's third-party apps and capabilities will be available as standalone apps on the Google Play store. The Daydream View headset used while watching VR content will no longer be available.

Google isn't the only company that has ditched virtual reality development. Xiaomi has previously released VR headsets and also has no plans to continue working in this direction. But for VR content aficionados at Facebook-owned Oculus, the Oculus Quest 2, a $ 299 wireless VR headset, is now available.
